Reuben is in charge!

Yesterday afternoon I went to visit my friends over at Ringo's Rat Tales. I no gotted to actually see the rats themselves, for surely I is so ferocious that they would run away forever and ever. Angela and Ringo gots a dog too - her name is Lucy, but she was in her crate because, much like Gretchen the Doxador, she likes to sprint out the front door and into the street at every opportunities. So even though I no could see or hear these not-very-fearsome animals, I could SMELL them. Something had to be done about that.

Imagine that here I is indoors, and that this tree is a nice container holding things in the living room. I did what any brave dachshund would do - I peed on it. Then Mama gasped and said "No Reuben, No! Bad Dog!" and it hurted my feelings, for I was only trying to prove that their house and all the things in it belongs to me. She picked me up and held me in a kind of football-cradle way for the rest of our visit, probably because she loves me so much and no can resist my beauties.

This morning Mama woked up and reached for her glasses and said "OW!" "What it is, Mama?" I asked, and she says, "Reuben, I has a great soreness in my arm from holding you for so long yesterday." Probably she could use the strength training I provides free of charge, so I is sure to receive some treats today for this important service. You're welcome, Mama!


  1. Funny how peeing up the sofa never goes down well isn't it?! Deccy x

  2. This makes me smile and my day better. I miss my boys (henry and virgil) at home and hate leaving them to go to work.

  3. Tee Hee Reuben,

    You're funny!! Though I'm not sure your Mum thought your behavior was so funny - don't worry, Mum's can be odd like that some times!! :)

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  4. Reuben actually sent me a sweet email last night apologizing for his behavior. He had wonderful intentions and told me he was marking the territory in order to protect our home from other canine invaders. He felt Lucy was too delicate to defend our family and he had a few choice words about the rats. He believes Boo, Peter and Edmund are plotting an uprising. He felt sure his powerful mark would deter any such activity...and he may be right. The rats have been exhibiting some unusually suspicious behavior lately. Perhaps Reuben deserves a treat.

  5. Reuben your poor mum , canines know how important home security is!!!!! Just joined
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Ooops Reuben! I'm glad Mom made up for hurting your feelings! =D
